Being a Good Neighbour
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted” – Aesop
Offering help in your community
Keep it local and manageable. We suggest your own street or about 20-30 houses at most. Don’t try to cover more than you realistically can sustain – this might last for months.
Stick to a patch you know well. Keep to where people will recognise you and trust your offer is genuine.
Try to understand that people may be cautious. about accepting help if they don’t know you well and have the right to refuse your help.
Create a list of the things that you feel able to help others with. Feel comfortable to say no if people ask for more help than you’re able to give.
Trust your instincts when you are offering to help others or being offered help. Remove yourself from the situation if you don’t feel safe and respect others choice to do the same.
